In honor of National Disability Awareness Month, the Low Maintenance Book Club is reading selections from Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century, edited by Alice Wong, founder and director of the Disability Visibility Project. Our discussion will take place over Zoom on Wednesday, March 22 at noon.
The readings include:
- Introduction by Alice Wong
- “When You are Waiting to be Healed” by June Eric-Udorie
- “Canfei to Canji: The Freedom of Being Loud” by Sandy Ho
- “How a Blind Astronomer Found a Way to Hear the Stars” by Wanda Diaz-Merced
- “The Beauty of Spaces Created for and by Disabled People” by s.e. smith
Attendees are also encouraged to read other essays in the book (they’re all bite-sized, we promise!) and bring a favorite to discuss with the group. As always, though, anyone is welcome regardless of how much (or whether) you’ve read.
If you have any questions, please contact Arianne Hartsell-Gundy (firstname.lastname@example.org)
